The Colorado School of Mines Department of Geology and Geological Engineering provides one of the premier applied geoscience programs in the world. Our main emphasis is on geological engineering, geohydrology, petroleum geology, and economic geology. The Department combines an exceptional focus on field skills with high-quality laboratory facilities.
One of our greatest strengths is our students. The Department has a student population of 155 undergraduate and 142 graduate students. The student group is diverse, with individuals joining us from around the world in both the undergraduate and graduate programs. Though males still outnumber female students, our overall student ratio is approaching 35% female (school-wide = 24%).
We currently have 18 faculty members and lecturers, 14 research faculty, 6 support staff, and several active emeritus professors. Visit our directory and check out individual faculty pages. You will find that we are involved in research from Alaska to southern Chile, and from California through Europe and Africa to the Far East, in addition to many projects here at home in the Rocky Mountains.
